Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is an advanced form of myofascial mobilization — similar to deep-tissue massage. It is primarily used to detect and release scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions.
Clinicians trained in this technique can effectively locate adhesions and restrictions in the soft tissue through the vibrations or undulations that HawkGrips instruments provide. Once these areas have been identified, clinicians may then utilize our instruments to treat you and help to restore optimal function.
HawkGrips are considered the gold standard of our industry, and quality instruments genuinely matter when it comes to IASTM treatments. Many practitioners in this field use inferior instruments including cheap plastic tools. Serious professionals demand the best, and you should too.
